"Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, is scheduled to make a trip to three countries in Africa this month -- Egypt, Kenya and Burundi. From 1-5 February 2009 he will be attending the Primates' Meeting in Alexandria, Egypt. From 10-12 February he will attend the Africa Regional Partners' Roundtable with the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF). "The delegation will then visit the diocese of Bujumbura in Burundi from Feb. 12 to 16. The visit will include meetings with the bishop as well as visits to PWRDF-assisted projects, including an HIV-AIDS clinic. PWRDF youth members will remain for another week in Bujumbura where they will meet other Anglican youth in the diocese".
"The Anglican Church of Canada's General Synod has requested bishops and deans to focus, for 22 days, from May 31 to June 21 , on renewing the church's commitment to support the work of the Anglican Fund for Healing and Reconciliation through prayers, participation in awareness-raising campaigns and donations. Early this year , Council of General Synod (CoGS) agreed to dedicate the undesignated proceeds of Giving with Grace, General Synod's annual fundraising campaign, to replenish the fund. For the next five years, the fund -- created in 1992 as part of the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement -- will focus on language recovery". General Secretary, Archdeacon Michael Thompson, "stressed that while the Anglican Church of Canada has met its legal obligations under the settlement agreement, 'we're far from finished with our spiritual and moral obligation to continue to support the healing work that is underway among those survivors and in those communities'."
